May we all rejoice their together someday. Until then, she watches over us. "One with the stars, forevermore" Star date: September 2nd Location: Taurus constellation
Today is Jill Janus birthday and to honor/celebrate we invite you to contribute to this animal rescue campaign in name. Jill was only passionate about one charity and that was saving as many critters as possible. While contributions to mental health charities are appropriate there is no doubt in my mind this is how she would want her legacy celebrated. Everybody knew it was Chihuahuas 1st, people second. I dug up this picture of a typical dressing room scene on tour with the fur babies. We love you Jill and so do all the lives you touched both furry and human.

It is with crushed hearts that we announce that Jill Janus—frontwoman for the California heavy metal band Huntress—passed away on Tuesday, August 14. A long-time sufferer of mental illness, she took her own life outside of Portland, Oregon. Janus spoke publicly about these challenges in hopes of guiding others to address and overcome their mental illness. Janus was a truly special creative involved with numerous musical projects including her role as vocalist for female metal/hard rock cover bands TheStarbreakers and Chelsea Girls. In addition, Janus was co-composer and creator of an upcoming rock opera with Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Angus Clark and had a decade-long career as NYC DJ Penelope Tuesdae. Her musical career began in childhood. Beyond her accomplishments in the music world and her advocacy for mental health issues, she was a beautiful person passionate about her family, animal rescue and the world of natural medicine. She will be missed more than she could have ever known. If you or someone you know might be at risk of suicide, Call 1-800-273-8255 to reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Introducing the star of our show and purveyor of purity, Victory! She’s the teenage phenomenon captivating your souls, the superstar savior, and the assassin of sin! And so it begins. The story of Victory: The Rock Opera weaves a tale of innocence and lust. Victory’s an internet sensation, a social media superstar whose God-like reach has given hope to the desolate and deranged. This is a sordid saga best viewed through rose-colored glasses. But take a peek behind the smoke and mirrors. There you’ll find the lock that bears the seal of Zander. He is Victory’s adoptive father, the builder of the pedestal from which she reigns. He’s a crude man and the shady owner of the Divine Dive cabaret, where Victory is happily and unknowingly kept captive. That is until a wayward guitarist named Cameo enters the scene. But when Victory and her young renegade fall in love, they threaten Zander’s ultimate plan: to auction Victory’s virtue to the highest bidder when she turns 18. Enter a slew of seedy characters, Victory’s strung-out mother, Veronica, and Tino the benevolent, sleazy snitch. The battle between innocence and lust has started. Victory discovers desire beyond her golden cage and the shame it brings. Will she break free or remain the same? All will be revealed in the story of Victory. Listen to music and read more!

CreatureCvlt asks Our Queen Witch Jill Janus ~ What is your religion? "The force of nature is my religion." Growing up in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York on a dairy farm, Jill's love of nature and animals shaped the imagery for her band Huntress. She's part Native American - Huron Indian tribe - that bloodline inspired the Huntress song "Noble Savage" with a chorus in French representing the bond that the Huron Indians and French Canadians shared.
